Ryan, I stand corrected, you believe in everything but my right to private property. Therefore, as a Canadian, I can vote, speak my mind (assuming a human rights commission approves), hold a rally, but if the government decides to take my home, money, and anything else I own, I am legally bound to give it to them.

The democratic rights that you are enamored with, mean nothing if they do not guarantee sovereignty over the fruits of my labour. The logical extension of this line of thinking is to make me a slave to government.

Furthermore, Section 6 , Subsection (2) does nothing to guarantee property rights. As I mentioned previously, Section 6, Subsection (4) trumps this right, if and when the government decides it needs your wealth to help "disadvantaged" people.

Therefore, unless you want to clarify your position, I will assume you also support the government's ability to seize a person's wealth and property at any time.
